Toyota Malaysia has very sneakily published first details of a new Camry variant, the Toyota Camry 2.0 G X, on its website. The new trim level is an attempt to add more value to the 2.0 G variant.

Not many details are known at the moment – we only have this interior picture to go on so far – but the main differences on the exterior are 17-inch dark silver alloy wheels (shod with 215/55 tyres, just like the 2.5 variant) as well as dark bezel HID projector headlights and LED tail lights for the “smoked” look.

Inside though is where most of the changes lie. The upholstery is now dark brown leather and there is what looks like a unique wood trim design. Also new is a 2-DIN head unit with a seven-inch touchscreen, DVD player, Bluetooth, Smartphone Link, navigation and a reverse camera with guide lines. In addition, the 2.0 G X variant gets the powered rear blind and manual rear side window blinds from the 2.5.

Mechanically, the 2.0 G X shares the same 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic gearbox as the 2.0 G. Also similar to the 2.0 G is the safety equipment – so still just two airbags, as well as VSC and TRC.

The price of the 2.0 G X as stated on the price list is RM159,900, on the road with insurance. That is just shy of a RM1,000 premium over the 2.0 G, but much cheaper than the 2.5 V.
